It's still breast cancer awareness month, and I am constantly amazed by the unique ways that companies are continuing to find ways to support this campaign. I wrote about Freschetta pizza a few months ago, and now they're back with a slightly different sort of program.
From now through October 31 - so hurry! - every time you purchase a Freschetta pizza or Artisan pizza crust, you can help them achieve a goal of donating $50,000 to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. All you need to do is enter the code from the package into their Proud to Support Pink site. They're only around $15,000 right now, so that's a lot of codes yet to be entered!
If you can't buy your pizza by then, you can still help them reach their goal. You can "donate" $1 with no purchase required with the code FRESCH11 on the same Proud to Support Pink site. Please share this with your friends and family so they can reach their $50,000 goal.
Beyond doing the nice thing, what's in it for you? Each week in October, Freschetta is giving away 50 pink iPods to those who enter the code. You know you want to be one of those 50 this week, right? And yes, Freschetta is also donating 50 pink iPods each week to cancer centers throughout the States for breast cancer patients to use while undergoing treatments. That may be a small measure of comfort, but I love the thought and effort behind it.
Now that I've talked you into buying that pizza, how about you save some money while doing so? Use this $1 off Freschetta coupon to purchase your pizza, and remember to enter your code by October 31!
Oh, and did I mention there is a giveaway associated with this, too? I have a coupon for a free Freschetta pizza and two sets of pink earbuds - one for you to keep and one to make someone's day by sharing with them (or be like me and replace the earbuds you lost ... again).
So what do you have to do to win? First of all, let me stress that you must follow all the rules. If you do not follow the rules, your entry will not count!
